    Fueled By Ramen recording group A Rocket to the Moon has announced details of their first-ever North American headline tour. The "On Your Side" tour will launch on March 15th at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, New York, and then continue through late April.

    Accompanying ARTTM on the 32-city trek will be a multi-artist line-up featuring Valencia, Anarbor, Runner Runner, and Go Radio. Presale tickets will be available beginning January 10th and remaining tickets will go on sale starting January 15th here.

    The "On Your Side" tour is being sponsored by www.musicskins.com, who will be offering limited edition A Rocket to the Moon skins for mobile devices during ticket presale and out on the tour. Additional sponsors include the Chicago based clothing company Snakes & Suits and The Keep A Breast Foundation, a non-profit organization aimed at helping to eradicate breast cancer by educating young people on methods of prevention, early detection and support.

    The dates follow the recent release of A Rocket To The Moon's acclaimed EP, The Rainy Day Sessions. Available exclusively via iTunes, the 5-track EP features new versions of songs originally found on the band's 2009 debut album, On Your Side recorded with female bluegrass group Larkin Poe and award-winning producer Dan Hannon (Manchester Orchestra). Among the highlights of the EP is a country and bluegrass tinged take on the band's hit single, "Like We Used To," as well as a creative cover of Beyoncé's classic "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)."
